Default Job Help in Charlotte NC

Guys if you have any contacts or know anyone in Charlotte NC, I am in need of a new job the one I have now is starting to effect my personal life with how unhappy it's making me. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Please don't post a list of jobs available. I've been sending resumes out left and right and have yet to hear anything back. I'm asking for some legit help with some networking here so that I can move forward and get out of this slump.

Seriously any job leads possible. I realize that I'm not qualified for some things but I'm looking for a serious change and any lead I can get at this point I'll take. I'm sure I'll have to weed them out and I wouldn't take anything I'm not qualified for and put any of y'all's reputations on the line but the situation I'm in now is literally starting to make me depressed. I'd like something with a good company/business that I could settle into and advance my way through but any help is appreciated at this time.

submitting resumes via montser or careerbuilder is almost a lost cause. In order to stand out, you have to follow up directly with the company.

That said, good luck

You work for Red Ventures? I've heard that place sucks.

If you are looking to stay in sales you could work in medical sales, capital equipment sales, solution sales, staffing, software etc.

I know folks who found success using the Ladders website.

Linkedin is a powerful tool when looking for a job. Make sure your linkedin profile is tight, well worded, list all your awards, atta boys, etc, and have your picture attached to the profile. I have head hunters contact me on a weekly basis just based off of my linkedin profile.

I do and it does unless you are a corporate bigwig. I could go into a long gripe fest but its pointless. They've gotten away from what made them a good company originally and its only getting worse.

Hey Bud, don't really have the contacts but if you are still interested in sales, that is likely where I would look for your next position. Not sure how much money you have to make but with a sales background if you need to land quickly I would drive around to some new car dealerships (preferably those that have large used car lots as well). They usually will give you a stipend which will count against your commission but at least you have some walking around money.

At that point all you have to do is hustle, it is a numbers game. Car sales are coming back & banks are giving loans. Go in person, walk in & ask to speak with the sales manager.

PM Cockymac, he is a corporate recruiter. He can help fit your resume to what your are looking for.
